Hard Drive Destruction Nationwide

Hard Drive Destruction Nationwide

Almost all the Data Killers trucks were serving customers every day in the past few weeks so you may have seen trucks anywhere from North Carolina to Ohio to California. In Maryland, we were performing hard drive destruction for a defense contractor using a 10mm screen. Data Killers’ destruction for this contractor is part of an on-going project that will span over 20 states and involve work in nearly 50 facilities.  Shredding hard drives with this 10mm screen ensures that smallest possible residual pieces of the hard drives.  This ensures complete security of the data stored on the contractor’s hard drives.    In Virginia at a military base, we performed on-site hard drive shredding of several thousand hard drives and a few hundred tapes. Also in Virginia, the Data Killers truck was in Chantilly and Fairfax doing on-site data destruction for a communications technology company and a large defense contractor respectively.

In California, the Data Killers truck was shredding hard drives in San Jose, Woodland Hills, Oakland and San Diego.  Two of these sites involved data center decommissions.  Data Centers have a huge responsibility to their customers and their customer’s customers to ensure that all data is properly destroyed.  Data housed in these data centers ranges from HIPPA, PII to PCI protected data.  It is very important that these end of life hard drives are properly destroyed by a certified data destruction company like Data Killers in order to ensure compliance.

Another Data Killers truck was shredding hard drives in Ohio and North Carolina.  Our employees have been carefully screened and selected to pass onto the most secure government sites. At one of these sites, Data Killers was  degaussing back-up tapes and then shredding them to 30mm.  By degaussing the tapes first, the customer is ensuring that no information will be recoverable and the redundant tape shredding ensures NSA compliance and provides visual confirmation of destruction.  Data Killers’ offers hard drive destruction nationwide  for a variety of government and military organizations,and Fortune 500 corporations.
